Putting a larger wheel and tire combo on your Chevy Silverado can be like trying to put a round peg in a square hole without a little help. AmericanTrucks demonstrates exactly what you need to do in this video, using their 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 as a test mule. The truck is getting a 6” life and massive 33” tires.
Learn more in the official release below from AmericanTrucks, and watch as the AmericanTrucks host gets this Silverado hooked up with more height, and bigger tires.
From the factory, the Chevrolet Silverado is pretty well equipped. It has tons of power, loads of comfort, and all of the luxuries you could desire, including leather seats. But some may find that they don’t exactly have the right amount of ground clearance. Deciding to use a lift kit should be inspired by the following scenarios: the need for extra ground clearance, moving to oversized tires, or correcting ride height.
In this episode of AmericanTrucks’ (AT) ‘The Haul’ YouTube Series, Adam Maqboul talks truck lift kits; specifically, lifting a 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500. With 6” lift kits being one of the most popular sizes in AT’s catalog from Fabtech, Adam produced this video to highlight an effective solution to making clearance for larger wheels and meaty 33″ tires in the Silverado’s notoriously square wheels arches. Adam then shows all of the challenges surrounding the art of fitting larger tires on your lifted Silverado.
